Dr. Charles Gerba, a microbiologist at the University of Arizona, whose nickname is "Dr. Germ," spoke to ABC News (http://www.abcnews.go.com/Health/ColdandFluNews/Story?id=6107063&page=1) recently, about the germiest professions in America:
1. Teacher/day-care worker
2. Cashier, bank employee
3. Tech support/computer repair
4. Doctor or nurse
5. Lab scientist
6. Police officer
7. Animal control officer
8. Janitor or plumber
9. Sanitation worker (AKA garbage man/woman)
10. Meat packer
I think I'd add pest control workers to the list. Just think of those poor guys (and gals) crawling around in dark basements in search of rats. Ewww.

1. Teacher/day-care worker
Plumbers are always working around kids in the home.
2. Cashier, bank employee
Plumbers handle money too.
3. Tech support/computer repair
Yeah dude, plumbers repair things
4. Doctor or nurse
Yeah, always putting band aids on other workers.
5. Lab scientist
It feels like that when you break in some of those new monkeys right out of high school. Dooh!
6. Police officer
It's the law man! At least it's plumbing code.
7. Animal control officer
We work around dogs too, sometimes wolves if we are working on some out the way cabin in the mountains. Why wolves? you would think a dog would make a better pet.
8. Janitor or plumber
Oh yeah, plumber.
9. Sanitation worker (AKA garbage man/woman)
Yeah yeah yeah, clean up afterwards.
10. Meat packer
Ever cleaned out a grease trap? Bring the rubber gloves and the aspirator.
